This inaugural exhibition at Sediment features five artists currently living in Richmond, Virginia. The work of Jon Duff, Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas, Courtney McClellan, David Kenedy, and Ryan Crowley span a variety of mediums and processes. The interludes between their distinctive works become a net of connections that allow for a multiplicity of perspectives on each piece and the exhibition as a whole. We are aware to mind the gaps.
